Young Singers Academy
All singers ages 8 and up are invited to join in the Young Singers Academy, a four-week program where participants will receive weekly video lessons and materials via email. Video lessons will be sent to students on Mondays June 28, July 5, 12, and 19. These lessons can be used conveniently and repeated as often as desired. In addition to the four lessons, participants will join in four live zoom meetings for a group sing on July 1, 8, 15, and 22 at 5pm. The combined lessons and zoom sessions will explore vocal production, note reading, rhythm skills, and musicianship through songs and activities. This is a free program offered to all youth in Talbot County, sponsored by the Talbot Optimists Club. No experience is necessary and all are welcome.
The Summer Sing Choir Festival, as planned for a community chorus and orchestra, has been suspended due to safety concerns related to the pandemic. In past years we have enjoyed a chorus of more than 50 voices and full audiences. And we have especially enjoyed the company of fellow musicians. Plans for the 2022 Summer Sing are in motion, but until then we hope to continue the tradition of many making music as one. This year's Summer Sing will take place July 22, 23, and 24, at 7pm, on the lawn at Trinity Cathedral in Easton. While we will not be offering a performance, we will be singing together in person for the first time in more than a year. There is no cost to participate, music from madrigals to contemporary composers will be provided. All are invited to enjoy this time of choral singing together.
